In philosophy, poiesis is "the activity in which a person brings something into being that did not exist before." Poiesis is etymologically derived from the ancient Greek term ποιεῖν, which means "to make".

 









Mektub is written in the Sea                       Mektub: (arabic) "it was written" / providence





I was, I am, and still am here to last.


Sea is my name


And am anything, but lame.





See, in the beginning I was alone,


And one day I will wash thy bone.


You are the Salt of the #Earth.



Like tears of my rain, 


You came through my blue blue vein.



From #Oceans with pain,


Who is to blame for inhumane fame?



#Notinmyname 


My flame is not to tame.



Countless Caïns sold and tainted me


To reign over my fainting blue blue body.


In vain, it's insane, like a never stopping train.



Come'n make peace'n play with me,


I am your healing Sea.

" In trance's trace,


art translates


the spectrum of reality into 



a mixed media language

 


of serendipity,


tragedy & poetry."




J e a n n e   R i c k e t t s    2002 - 2020

 


EVERYTHING FEELS EVERYTHING.



ART IS A COMMITMENT




TO SAVE US FROM IGNORANCE, 




BY BALANCING




THE WORLD OF PARADOX. "

Jeanne Ricketts 2016                                    

       

 
 




Oh Labyrinth,






Your colorful vessel 



is life's trace in a World



of transient things.





As we create our realities, 



let us find back home.

Jeanne Ricketts 2012                      


                  

                                                                                               Jeanne Ricketts - Human Labyrinth 1993, Etching n°1 of 2



 
 



The Journey






When brave hearts hear their call

They take the courage to leave the crowd

And dive into their "Holy Land"
 
transcending From ancestral wounds

into life's renewal.




Sacred experience in which all sense meets

By witnessing the birth of vision
 
Life frees those who embrace its healing touch.



 
Swaying like a loose labyrinth

Or a web in its own Light and space, 

With interacting levels reflecting life,




Accumulating and losing

All sorts of parts whilst

Unfolding into various new

Combinations of serendipity..
 



In Light's awesome presence,

life tears and tilts our epicenter,

Expressing freedom to exist and coexist,

Feared by most since all

Limitations are self-imposed. 




As we're sculpting our lives,

We merge into life's spice !

We'll stop, yet never end.



Jeanne Ricketts - 2010

 
 
 
 




Sphere of Mercy 


The real measure of how much you're worth


is how much you woulD be worth if you lost all your money.   _



Unknown               


 

Jeanne Ricketts 'merging souls'  - oil & charcoal before cutting into my canvas




It's freedom itself


Driving you through pain,



Till free.. 


In consciously welcoming mistakes



Since trust is choosing 


future scars forgivingly



For providence to fall into place, 


Mysteries to unfold,


Serendipity to takes over. . . 


Jeanne Ricketts

2014

 


Sigh of Sighs, Twist'n tango




Where do we go, when inner music


valses us trough the flow ?

 

From the currents of mainstream nights, 


to its shredding enlightenment,



we remember our parents


how they made it, 


night after night . .



Light enlightens the sleepless fight,


discerning in minimalistic sight.



Oh sigh of sighs,


when you ignite,


and free-will feels tight,


we bite into what's right !



Jeanne Ricketts

"The eye of the soul catches sequences of eternity, in the present moment."
